Some languages are more prone to following vowels..
Example being "The","Be" and like. While some lingos use vowels in
front. Example being "Able", "Although" and like.
One lends it self to "diacritical" (vowel mark) that follows, and can
be artistically pleasing.. As well as functional. both can be fun.
Then you have modes that use full letters versus "diacritical" or like
marks to signify vowels.. The first is much like how Arabic and Hebrew
and related lingos use it. While the third is how English is most
often done.. Really fun when you use Tengwar for a lingo like Arabic,
with the no real need to show vowels other than for new
Of course lingos like Sanskrit that uses a syllybary can be a bit fun
to figure out for Tengwar. Do you use the mode to signify the
syllybles or you do it like English and have one letter for one
consonant, or consonant and vowels?
One ring was done in an ancient pure form of Black Speech, invented by
Morgoth the former Vala named Melkor. And only used by the dark
enemies lieutenants and like, such as the Maia (former) later
